sally girl periwinkle

i always thought of the color periwinkle as more purple, not so blue, but this little sally girl periwinkle polish is definitely more blue. it is a pastel creme and very opaque, almost so in one coat. this is three, just because i kept getting streaks due to the goopy thickness. unfortunate but what do you expect for a cheapy 99 cent guy? this sort of reminds me of china glaze moody blue but more on the white creamy side. i was looking for a shade like this so i'm ok with it for sure until i can get my hands on moody blue or bikini bottom.not to try and sneak one past all you smartys, but this mani was also before i encountered the big break of august '09 (a.k.a. my dramatic nail shortening). i'm making a big deal about it because it's the first time one of my nails has broken since i got really into the polish thing back around may. excuse my sensationalism please ;)

  1. Hmmm, it doesn't look periwinkle to me either, it looks pale blue. I like it though!

  3. Haha, I think for 99c I don't care. In fact, one of my polishes I've officially "renamed" except when I talk about it in my blog for clarification :)

  8. Pretty pale "blue" on you. They sure don't know how to name colors. For 99 cents it's not bad. I've never used their brand of polish. Is it all gloppy?

  9. lucy, it is a little gloppy but it may be due in part to the small brush size? i needed a few drops of thinner :(
